Young brothers Vijay and Ajay watch helplessly as their shanty house burns down with their father and ailing mother unable to escape from the flames. Vijay and Ajay are subsequently separated, and Vijay makes his living as a career criminal with a difference - he only robs the rich to provide for the poor. Vijay is now known as Fakira, and he works together with his partners Popat and Neelam. One day he comes to the aid of a damsel in distress, Geeta, and takes her to their hideout, subsequently both fall in love, and get married quietly. Then criminal don, Chimanbhai, perturbed by Fakira's thefts, recruits a hit-man named Toofan to abduct or possibly kill Fakira by any and all means. Fakira unknowingly befriends Toofan. The trusting Fakira does not know that the woman he has married is the daughter of the Police Commissioner, and is herself a Plainclothes Policewoman assigned to arrest and bring him to justice; and that Toofan is none other than his younger brother, Ajay.

Good masala entertainment
27 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Shashi Kapoor and Danny Denzongpa play long-lost brothers and were separated in a fire caused by Madan Puri

Years later the pair meet with Shashi as the modern Robin Hood Fakira and Danny as the dangerous hit man Toofan However they are both as enemies because Fakira robs Madan Puri's goons and Madan Puri hires Toofan to bring Fakira to him

The direction is OK Music is good especially "Sunke Teri Pukar" and "Tota Maina Ki Kahani"

Shashi Kapoor and Danny Denzongpa are both awesome and brilliant in their roles Shabana Azmi is OK Asrani is good Mukri is funny Madan Puri excels Aruna Irani is good Asit Sen is OK The rest of the cast are funny
